One white pear blossom
Rises from the blooming bough
Spring’s first butterfly.



Fragile crocuses
White and purple chalices
Brimming with saffron.

Seagull II

Gray and white seagull
With wingtips dipped in black ink
Writing on the sky.

Birch Trees

Winter tats her lace
Delicate white traceries
Birches in the snow.

Pomegranate III

One unripe white seed
In the pomegranate’s trove
Quartz among garnets.

Snow II

White hieroglyphics
Written across the meadow
Bird tracks in the snow.


Pierced by falcon claws
Red feathers on the white snow
A cardinal sin.
